Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Medium-sized flycatcher with a gray head, olive back, and yellow belly. Note the white rump contrasting with the dark tail, which has a broad white terminal band. Found in open wooded savannah, usually in pairs. Performs a charismatic duetting display singing a high and nasal “where where, whooz it” and “whru” notes, while lifting wings and flicking tails. The similar Suiriri Flycatcher has a longer bill and a white belly; it also lacks the white rump and tail band as well as having a different song and display.
